In our third demo session we’ll be showing you basic techniques in GIMP to create posters and digital call to actions if you’re an organisation, group or activist.
GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation Program) is ideal for making flyers, posters and web graphics. We’ll explain the tool and how to get the most out of using it. We’ll delve into good and bad design practices, and see how simple design principles can be used to improve your design.
The session is a great introduction for people who are new to image editing tools, or who want to go from commercial programs to free and open source graphic programs (known as ‘Libre Graphics’).
GIMP is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. To get the most out of the session, please take a moment to download and install it in advance: GIMP
Libre Graphics is a broad ecosystem of digital tools and creative practises in the areas of design, illustration, typography, layout, art, photography, publishing, cartography, animation and video.
Libre Graphics Club is an artist-led pilot project to develop and deliver a series of free workshops and open access online educational resource for experimentation with free/libre arts & technologies.
In collaboration with Furtherfield, Access Space, Common House and Antiuniversity, the project provides artist, community organisers and activists with exciting opportunities to explore Libre Graphics tools above and beyond those taught within the conventional art/design curriculums, so all can do more to enchant practice in these extraordinary times.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
